Tip#1232: The Recipe For Resilience, Perseverance & Indestructible Optimism, Part 38 – Appetite for Love


This is Day 313 of the COVID-19 pandemic here in Toronto, Canada. 

This week was filled with amazing nutritional epiphanies and delicious food gifts! A fellow Illustrator I knew years ago saw my Facebook post on my raw sauerkraut meals and offered me a sample jar of his homemade red beet, cabbage and daikon sauerkraut. He was kind enough to drop it off (with us wearing masks and social distancing of course) and the rich red/burgundy colour was absolutely stunning and gorgeous! 

Fermented Foods/Probiotics 

My brother also gave me a food gift of his homemade cultured butter which was so creamy and smooth! Both this and the raw sauerkraut are fermented foods filled with probiotics which are healthy bacteria beneficial for gut health. Our gut is home to around 80% of our immune system and this bacteria can signal to the brain to make happy chemicals like serotonin and dopamine. I believe adding fermented foods to my daily diet for several months is why my seasonal/winter depression symptoms are much lower this winter. 


Vitamin D & COVID-19 

Another person on Facebook shared a video link after seeing my post about Vitamin D and seasonal depression. The video related to this vitamin’s effectiveness against COVID-19. I learned that Vitamin D is a steroid hormone which means it can go into cell membranes and nucleus and make effective changes for our immune system. And because it is winter with a lack of sunshine, I've learned to get Vitamin D mostly through foods like cod liver oil, sardines, salmon and raw cheeses while taking daily supplements of 4,000 IU. 

See video: Vitamin D & COVID-19

Food & Mood Presentation

I’m also thrilled to announce that a presentation I gave online about my Food & Mood journey is now available as a 20 minute audio recording and transcript. Big thanks to mental health organization, The Stability Network for having me speak. I talked about how NUTRIENT DENSE FOODS and COMFORT FOODS have helped empower my mental health and resilience. I also give simple food tips based on how I’ve successfully managed my clinical and seasonal depression during this pandemic. 

 Check it out: Emmanuel’s Food & Mood Presentation 


Wonders of Water

One of the key health tips I shared was drinking enough water per day. Part of my self-care discoveries over recent years was that some of my seasonal depression symptoms were due to dehydration during the winter. So it’s important for me to immediately drink one to two cups of water when my brain goes foggy, my body feels paralyzed and my mood drops. 

The theme of water came up again when I recently watched a Hallmark film that re-ignited an epiphany I had during my 2019 Vermont vacation. This is where I was truly amazed at the quality of the farm-to-table meals I had at the local restaurants. I was told that a big part of the reason was the local spring waters that grow the vegetables, feed the animals and the chefs used for cooking the delicious farm fresh foods! 

Appetite for Love (2016) 

The romantic comedy, Appetite for Love, is a Hallmark TV movie about corporate executive Mina (Taylor Cole) sent to a small town in Tennessee to re-brand a diner owned by her ex-boyfriend, Clay (Andrew W. Walker). With lots of foodie shots and warmhearted performances by the cast this film is set within beautiful scenery shot in British Columbia, Canada.

There is a moment in this film that highlights the strengths of the diner’s food which was the quality of the local water rich with essential minerals. Mina discovers this through Clay and his head Chef Lucien about all the wonderful benefits that stem from their water. This spoke so deeply to me because I’d experienced the profound foods on my trip to Vermont and has inspired me to explore this more. 

I felt this was a surprising subplot that was also educating viewers to the benefit of mineral rich water and the quality of the foods we eat. So this was much more than a romantic Hallmark TV movie, it will also feed your mind! I highly recommend you see this film available on YouTube, Amazon Prime Video and other streaming services. 

Movies and foods can help inspire you to stay healthy and strong during difficult times. And mindful eating of nutrient-filled foods can increase your resilience and optimism. Remember to also drink several cups of water per day for re-vitalizing your body, mind and spirit. Make your days a delicious journey of exciting, new self-care practices!

Tip#1231: The Recipe For Resilience, Perseverance & Indestructible Optimism, Part 37 – Synchronic


This is Day 306 of the COVID-19 pandemic here in Toronto, Canada. 

This continues to be a very surreal, unreal time. This past week we saw another province wide lockdown here in Toronto where we’ve been asked to stay at home except for going out for essentials or exercise. Fallout and unrest also continued in the news from the deadly insurrection at the US Capitol building on January 6th. On top of all this the winter blues aka seasonal depression have returned in intensity to take my mind off line and disconnect me from my normal sense of reality. 

Monday, January 18th is also Blue Monday, a day referred to as the most depressing day of the year and I am honoured to be part of a FREE CONCERT OF HOPE at 8pm EST. This concert is presented by High Notes Avante Productions and features Dan Hill, Amici Chamber Ensemble, Luba Goy, Lloyd Robertson & Friends. I’ll be doing a short talk via video about my monthly Zoom group, HIGH NOTES MOVIE CLUB

These surreal times are reflected in a surreal film I recently discovered. It captures the spirit of these unreal times and took me to a weird and wonderful alternate reality for a few hours! 

Synchronic (2019) 

The science fiction horror film, Synchronic, is about two New Orleans paramedics, Steve (Anthony Mackie) and Dennis (Jamie Dornon) whose lives and understanding of reality are ripped apart after a series of horrific deaths linked to a designer drug with otherworldly effects. This mind-bending story has some fantastic visuals and many surprising scenes.
Watch: movie trailer
Watch/Rent or Buy now: Amazon Prime

I watched this amazing film without knowing anything about it and I highly recommend you do the same. Do not watch the trailer! The only points I will share is that there are life lessons about living life to the fullest and for treasuring the time we have on this planet. It’s films like this that can help shake up your own perceptions about life and your current reality and in a good way. 

When you feel life has become so surreal and unreal it could be a positive step towards shaking up a life that has become routine, boring and, perhaps, meaningless. Embrace this uneasy feeling and be open to seeing your life from a new dimension or even multiple dimensions!

Tip#1230: The Recipe For Resilience, Perseverance & Indestructible Optimism, Part 36 – Last Holiday 1950 & 2006


This is Day 299 of the COVID-19 pandemic here in Toronto, Canada. 

Two exciting opportunities came to me during this pandemic which were the invitations from two mental health organizations to speak on what I love: Food and Movies! These passions not only helped me cope with clinical and seasonal depression over the years, they empowered my mental health and resilience during the last 10 months in isolation and lockdowns. 

High Notes Avante Productions 

The first opportunity was from High Notes Avante Productions, a Canadian mental health organization that reached out and hired me to host a monthly Zoom group called High Notes Movie Club. This was an online service where people in isolation could have lively discussions and share favourite uplifting films and discover new ones to help them through depression and difficult times. 

See my intro video: High Notes Movie Club, 1 min.

The Stability Network 

The second opportunity was from The Stability Network, a group of international professionals dealing with personal mental health challenges that support one another and speak at organizations about their experiences and coping solutions. I was honored to have been asked to do a Zoom presentation about my journey with food and mood. I was thrilled to share tips from my research on Dr. Weston Price and the benefits of eating nutrient dense foods as well as comfort foods.

Listen to 20 minute audio: Emmanuel’s Food & Mood Tips
Download transcript: Emmanuel’s Food & Mood Tips PDF 

These wonderful opportunities actually relate to an entertaining 2006 film I just watched again about following your passions called Last Holiday starring Queen Latifah. It is also about the joy of cooking and food which has been my passion during this pandemic and lock down! And to my surprise I recently discovered it was actually a remake of a 1950’s film of the same name starring Sir Alec Guinness aka Obi Wan Kenobi! 


Last Holiday (1950) 

The dark comedy drama film, Last Holiday, is about an ordinary middle-class salesman George Bird (Alec Guinness) diagnosed with a fatal illness, spending his few remaining days in luxury at a posh seaside resort. Also starring Beatrice Campbell, Brian Worth, Kay Walsh, Wilfrid Hyde-White and more.
Watch: movie trailer
Watch/Rent or Buy now: Amazon Prime Video


It was fascinating to see the similarities between this darker version and the 2006 romantic comedy especially in the scenes where George uses his savings to buy a fancy new wardrobe and then project himself as a wealthy businessman at the resort. And it was fun to see George’s luck change like winning at gambling, offering invaluable advice other affluent hotel guests that enthusiastically offer him exciting job opportunities. I didn’t like the ending but I still recommend you see this version. 


Last Holiday (2006) 

The romantic comedy-drama film, Last Holiday, is about a humble department store assistant named Georgia Byrd (Queen Latifah) who is told she has a rare brain condition with a few weeks to live and decides to spend her remaining funds on a luxury holiday in Europe before she dies. Also starring LL Cool J, Timothy Hutton, Giancarlo Esposito, Alicia Witt, Michael Nouri and Gérard Depardieu as Chef Didier.
Watch: movie trailer
Watch/Rent or Buy now: Amazon Prime Video

This feel-good version is filled with hilarious and memorable scenes of Georgia’s transformation into a fearless, highly confident woman, speaking her mind unfiltered, ordering every special off the posh dinner menu and base-jumping off a very high bridge. She also indulges in her passion for cooking with the aid of renowned French Chef Didier. Her Book of Possibilities was also an important, inspirational part of this film. Georgia is a fantastic cinematic role model for taking charge of one’s life, living it to the fullest and transforming hearts and lives. Highly recommend!

There are times in our lives, like a long pandemic, that can appear to be a hopeless, dark period. And yet it can also be a profound time of introspection and self-discovery of the things you truly love and love to do. Harness the silver linings of these dark times to identify and embrace your passions. In return, your life and work could be re-energized, rejuvenated and re-vitalized in new and exciting ways!

Tip#1229: The Recipe For Resilience, Perseverance & Indestructible Optimism, Part 35 – Feel Good Energy of Movies & TV Shows


This is Day 292 of the COVID-19 pandemic here in Toronto, Canada. 

It was a little tough but I made it through Christmas and New Year’s Day alone at home and separated from any family or friends. I persevered thanks to a fridge and freezer full of delicious food gifts and lots of uplifting movies and TV shows. And I found that every one of these shows delivered messages that inspired my resilience and optimism for 2021. Some even filled me with wonderful nostalgic feelings! 

3 TV SHOWS WITH MESSAGES: 

Star Trek: Discovery, Season 3:
• The power of social support & community
• Wellness & mental health support
• Inner child healing
• Letting go
• Leadership & teamwork
• Seeing my friend and actress Avaah Blackwell as Lt. Ina in episodes 11 & 12!

Cobra Kai, Season 3:
• Creating alliances
• Healing old relationships
• Helping others suffering from same issues as yourself
• Facing fears
• Feel-good feelings of nostalgia 

The Mandalorian, Season 2:
• Feel-good feelings of nostalgia
• Creating alliances 

7 MOVIES WITH MESSAGES: 

It Happened on Fifth Avenue (1947)
• The power of social support
• Second chances at love
• Brainstorming socially conscious projects
• Entrepreneurial tips
• Read more on tip#606

Last Holiday (1950)
• Unexpected benefits of having a wealth mindset versus a poverty mindset
• Living life fearlessly
• The power of social support & community

• Knowing the difference between your purpose and passion
• The power of music
• Read more on tip#1228

• Learning the sacrifices that come from choosing a life path
• Finding confidence and courage
Read more 

Spider-Man 3 (2007)
• One’s ego getting out of control and the consequences
• Learning forgiveness
Read more 

All of these life lessons that spoke to me helped to feed my positive thinking and resilience. They helped me focus on the positives of my isolated holiday situation rather than sink into depression and hopelessness. They helped me to feel that everything would be okay. 

One common factor in most of these programs was the feel-good feelings of nostalgia. This was a deep, warmth in my heart reminding me of happier times of my childhood or youth. These nostalgic feelings would be triggered by seeing characters from older movies like The Karate Kid, the first Spider-Man trilogy or the original Star Wars trilogy back again on the screen after many years. This is the uplifting energy that further fueled my positivity and optimism. 

Remember it is always possible to get through difficult times despite being alone and separated from the ones you love. You just need to believe in your inner strengths to persevere and that you can harness re-energizing tools around you like listening to favourite music, eat delicious foods you love or watch feel-good TV shows and films. So stay strong and resilient and believe that 2021 will be your best year ever! 

Happy New Year to all my faithful readers!!!

Tip#1228: The Recipe For Resilience, Perseverance & Indestructible Optimism, Part 34 – Soul


This is Day 285 of the COVID-19 pandemic here in Toronto, Canada. 

This Christmas week I was alone and in isolation from my family and friends and it could have been devastating and depressing. Thankfully I had a surplus of positive emotional energy! It was the simple joys of delicious food gifts I received and knowing I was loved and supported by these same family and friends. And, of course, my years of positive mindset training helped me stay resilient! 

I really missed being with my mom and in the warmer, sunnier climate of my annual vacation in Las Vegas but so far I am coping well. My little Charlie Brown Christmas tree has been providing a lot of joy! And I’ve been enjoying fantastic foods my siblings dropped off like succulent Prime Rib Au Jus, Yorkshire Pudding, Juicy Turkey (with all the fixings), Black Forrest Chocolate Cake, Spiked Egg Nog and much more! Plus I am brimming with homemade baked treats like Butter Bourbon Rice Krispy treats and lots of chocolates to re-energize my spirit! 

I also made a warm potato salad with fresh dill for my siblings from a delicious recipe by famous French Chef, Jacques Pepin with what he calls his tasty mayo-grette!



Watching favourite Christmas movies also kept me optimistic like the colorized version of It’s a Wonderful Life and the hidden gem Love the Coopers. And on Christmas Day I saw a new Pixar movie that would also inspire me to look forward to an exciting New Year. You could say this film definitely touched my “soul”! 

Soul (2020) 

The computer-animated fantasy comedy-drama film, Soul, is about a New York City middle school music teacher named Joe Gardner (Jamie Foxx) seeking to reunite his soul and his body after they are accidentally separated just before his big break as a jazz musician. This absolutely stunning movie is overflowing with fantastic visuals and wonderful music along with many thought-provoking messages. Other voice talents include Tina Fey, Questlove, Phylicia Rashad, Daveed Diggs, Richard Ayoade and Angela Bassett.

This was a truly epic, original, cinematic journey into a very deep topic of life after and before death. Some of these after/before life visuals are so breathtaking abstract and audacious and they also provide deep insights and life lessons about feeling lost and depressed in life. The film really explores what it is to not feel valued or not know what our purpose and passions are for living. It’s best not to know anymore and trust that this film will touch your heart and, of course, your soul! Pixar is famous for doing this in all their movies. 

Despite the long, difficult times of this global pandemic that we are all experiencing, there is also the hope and gifts of love and support of family and friends and even strangers that come to our aid. And there are also the uplifting joys of delicious foods and sweets that can transform dark moods into light. And always remember that one magic movie can also help you look forward to brighter, happier days ahead! 

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year to you during this very unique 2020 season!
